Telstra, Palm, Inc. and Research In Motion today announced that BlackBerry Connect for the Palm Treo 650 smartphone on the Telstra Network will be available early next month in Australia. BlackBerry Connect enables new and existing Treo 650 users to benefit from many popular features of the BlackBerry “push”-based architecture via BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
“With more than 2,000 business and government customers using our mobility solutions, we have a lot of experience integrating these services with their existing business processes,” Mr. Conneely said. “Many of our customers have realized significant productivity gains and competitive advantage from mobilizing business applications for their field workers and some have seen return on investment within three months.
“The benefits of the Palm Treo mobility solution are that it integrates a mobile phone with the BlackBerry push email solution and allows customers to access a wider range of business applications. This means our customers can do more using just the one device.”
Norm Lo, vice president for Asia Pacific at RIM, said, “BlackBerry provides a powerful and optimized wireless solution to satisfy the requirements of millions of mobile professionals worldwide. We are very pleased to bring BlackBerry Connect to the Treo 650 with Palm and Telstra.”
